What's new in the 2018 Grand Cherokee powertrains?

New to the Grand Cherokee powertrain options is the Trackhawk-specific supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8, ready to launch into zero-to-sixty speeds in just 3.5 seconds. Standard launch control also found within the SRT mimics a professional takeoff to make anyone feel like a drag racer. This, and all of the Grand Cherokee models, possess a TorqueFlite eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission that improves fuel efficiency and boosts a smooth, responsive shifting experience. Standard engine build is the 295 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, possessing the capabilities to tow upwards of 6,200 pounds when equipped with the Trailer Tow Package. Available upgrades for the first few trims are the 360 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V8, available standard in the luxury Overland and Summit, or the more fuel efficient 3.0-liter diesel V6. The diesel's high 420 lb-ft of torque is more ideal for the off-road specialized Trailhawk, which most effectively uses every amount of torque within its Low Gear 4x4 system and Quadra-Drive to maximize traction even across the trickiest terrain. The SRT comes with the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, giving heightened performance with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
